You do not want your family or loved ones to face repercussions of your decision to join the Yoga training. DO NOT stake your livelihood and life resources to join in for a Yoga Training. There is a fragile line between behaving irresponsible & rebellion. Believe me. There is no reference in any of the Yoga scriptures where it says ‘Yoga is about hurting others.’ So be careful, responsible and sensitive towards your beloved ones before you choose your perfect Yoga Center.
